Babajaga - witches in updraft! is a film about women united by the all-consuming passion for flying without engine power. Its about true friendship between sports-women, even across the frontiers of the cold war. And their termless dedication to get an own Woman World Championship, finally after 33 years of struggle.
Monika Warstat, first and only female European Champion of the GDR and Gisela Weinreich, one of the most successful gliding pilot of Germany telling the story of witches in updraft.
These witches are not angry and artful fairy-tale figures, they are proud and successful airwomen. The broom is their plane on which they glide through skies.
